Whether it’s Jim Graham‘s ill-fated promise to future Ward 1 replacement Brianne Nadeau that she would never be a “public official” like him or Vincent Orange‘s claim that his colleagues’ ethical lapses make him “look like a small infant,” 2014 was a year full of people saying things.

Now LL’s rounding up the best and worst. It’s time to nominate your Loose Lips Quotes of 2014. The countdown starts on Dec. 15.

LL doubts there’s anything as good as 2013 champion “piece of the piece,” but our political wordsmiths tried their best. Make your suggestions in the comments.
